Topic 1 Simple Linear Regression (Based on §§ 11.1-11.4 in book) A linear function of one variable is a function of the form y = f(x) = ∫0 + ∫1x, where ∫0 and ∫ 1 are the parameters of the model. Its graph is a straight line with yintercept ∫0 and slope ∫1. We also call a linear model a first order model. In general, models specified by a mathematical equation are called deterministic models, since they hypothesize an exact relationship between x and y. Examples 1 (a) y = 4 + 3x; y = -22.345 - 4.01x (b) A linear demand equation has the form y = ∫0 + ∫1x where x is the unit price of an item, and y is a measure of the demand (e.g. monthly orders or sales). Two Data Points If we are given only two data points (x1, y1) and (x2, y2), then the equation of the line through them is given by y = ∫0 + ∫1x where y -y ∫1 = 2 1 , x2-x1 and ∫ 0 = y1 - ∫1x1. Worksheet 1 Find the equation of the line through (1, 3) and (3.2, 5). Solution y2-y1 = x2-x1 ∫ 0 = y1 - ∫1x1. = ∫1 = Therefore, the equation of the line is y = ∫0 + ∫1x y= Probabilistic Models In real life, we cannot expect an exact mathematical relationship between, say, price and demand, but we might hypothesize instead that the actual demand is given by, say y = ∫0 + ∫1x + œ, where œ is a random error component. Such a model is called a probabilistic model. Q Exactly what is the random error? =

1

A Actually, œ is a random variable, specified for each value of x, as follows. For a fixed value of x, the experiment consists of measuring y, and then subtracting the theoretical prediction ∫ 0 + ∫1x from the result. Q What do you mean by a “random variable specified for each value of x?” A This means, we actually have lots of random variables œx , one for each value of x. However, we shall be making the assumption that all of the œx s have the same normal distribution, so can drop the subscript and write œ instead. Probabilistic First Order Model y = ∫0 + ∫1x + œ y = dependent variable (also called the response variable) — that is what is being modeled. x = independent variable (also called the predictor variable) ∫ 0 = y-intercept ∫ 1 = slope; the increase of y per one unit increase in x. œ = random error: a random normal variable with mean 0 that does not depend on x.

The deterministic part of the function, E(y) = ∫0 + ∫1x is referred to as the line of means, since the mean of y– = ∫0 + ∫1x + œ– = ∫0 + ∫1x. Best Fit Line: Least Squares In the simplest case we have two data points and we only need to find the equation of the line passing through them. However, it often happens that we have many data points that don't quite all lie on one line. The problem then is to find the line coming closest to passing through all of the points. Example 2 The following table list measured values of sales revenues for various advertising expenditures. Advertising Expenditure (x) ($100) Sales Revenue (y) ($1000) First, we plot the given data in a scattergram. 1 1 2 1 3 2 4 2 5 4

The regression line will be the one that minimizes the sum of the squares of the errors (SSE) (also known as the sum of the squares of the residuals), as shown. (The errors are given by observed value - predicted value): 5 4 3 2 1 0 0 -1 From the chart, we see that SSE = 2 and SE = 0 for the given line (although it is not the regression one.) To obtain the actual regression line, we would have to adjust the line above until we obtained the lowest SSE.

Least Squares (Regression) Line The least squares line associated with the points (xi, y1) is the line the minimizes the sum of-squares error, SSE, and has the form ^ =b +b x y 0 1 with SS Slope b1 = x y SSx x Intercept b0 = y– - b1 x– where x– and y– are te sample means of x and y, (£xi)(£yi) SSx y = £xiyi = £(xi-x–)(yi-y–) n (£xi)2 2 SSx x = £xi = £(xi-x–)2 n n = sample size Also, ^ SSE = sum of squares of errors = £(yi-yi )2 = SSy y - b1 SSx y Question Why minimize SSE and not, say, the absoute values of the errors? Answer There are two important reasons: (1) Mathematically, it generalizes the notion of the sample mean. For instance, look at the following points:
2.5 2 1.5 1 0.5 0 0 1 2 3 4 5

Any horizontal line will minimize the sum of the distances shown (the absolute values of the errors). However, only the line y = 1.5 (which happens to be the mean of the given yvalues) will minimize SSE. In general, the sample mean x– of a collection of values of X is the uniqu number that minimizes SSE, and not the absolute values of the errors. (2) Statistically, the regression line gives us unbiased estimators of the population parameters ∫0 and ∫1 . (Also see the discussion in Topic 2.)

Topic 2 Assumptions for Simple Linear Regression We list the assumptions we are making when we perform regression analysis: Assumptions for Simple Linear Regression (§11.4–11.6 in text) 1. Normalcy: We assume a relationship of the form y = ∫0 + ∫1x + œ, where œ is a normal random variable with mean 0 and variance ß2. In practice, we require that the residuals are more-orless normally distributed. 2. Homoscendacity: We assume that œ has the same standard deviation ß at every value of x. 3. Independence of errors The values of each measurement of y (and hence œ) are independent of each other: getting a certain value for one measurement does not effect the probability of the others. (Think, for example, of the DOW.) Question Why are these assumptions necessary? Answer: Although we can always construct a regresion line without these assumptions (just obtain the line that minimizes SSE), we cannot say that b0 and b1 are unbiased estimators of ∫0 and ∫ 1 without them. Nor can we make statitical inferences (see later) about ∫0 and ∫1 without these assumptions. Illustration of Violations of the Assumptions ^ We look at scatter plots of the residuals y - y versus x. Note We can have Excel plot them for us as an option when we do regression. Worksheet 1 Identify what, if any, violations are present in the given residual plots: A

There is a very precise way of detercting a certin kind of violation of Assumption 3 (Independence) called first order autocorrelation. This only makes sense in time-series data (that is, data where the x-axis measures time) such as the DOW or the price of gold, etc. If the scores in a time-seris plot are autocorrelated, it means that each residual depends positively (positive autocorreplation) or negatiely (negative autcorrelation) on the preceding score. We measure this phenomenon using a statstic called the Durbin-Watson statistic: Durbin-Watson Statistic 2 2 £(ei-ei-1) £(ei-ei-1) D= = 2 SSE £ei where ei is the residual at time i. Only makes sense for time-series data. We do a hypothesis test: H0 : There is no positive autocorrelation Ha: There is positive autocorrelation (That is, ei = mei-1 + k for some m>0 and k) Reject H0 if D is in the left-hand rejection region shown shaded Fail to reject H0 if D is in the right-hand portion of the rejection region shown. If D is in the “in-between” region, the test is inconclusive.

Testing for Negative autocorrelation: Replace dL by 4-dU and dU by 4 - dL and proceed as above. We can look up the lower and upper limits dU and dL in table E.10 in the textbook, using k = 1 (k is the number of independent variables we are using in regression). Question Where do the numbers in the table come from? Answer What Durbin & Watson did was to compute the sampling distribution of D. The rejection regions correspond to the tail-areas under the curve with an area of 0.05. It is not

Topic 3 The Coefficient of Determination and the Variability of the Random Term. (§11.3 and §11.7 in the text) Coefficient of Determination Question If my data points do not all lie on one straight line, how can I measure how closely they can be approximated by a straight line? Answer Think of SSE for a moment. It measures the sum of the squares of the deviations from the regression line, and therefore itself constitutes a measurement of goodness of fit. (For instance, if SSE = 0, then all the points lie on a straight line.) However, SSE depends on the units we use to measure y, and also on the number of data points (the more data points we use, the larger SSE tends to be). Thus, while we can (and do) use SSE to compare the goodness of fit of two lines to the same data, we cannot use it to compare the goodness of fit of one line to one set of data with that of another to a different set of data. To remove this dependency, statisticians have found a related quantity that can be used to compare the goodness of fit of lines to different sets data. This quantity, called the coefficient of determination, coefficient of correlation or correlation coefficient, and usually denoted r, is between -1 and 1. The closer r is to -1 or 1, the better the fit. For an exact fit, we would have r = -1 (for a line with negative slope) or r = 1 (for a line with positive slope). For a bad fit, we would have r close to 0.the figure shows several collections of data points with least squares lines and the corresponding values of r.

Question How do we compute and interpret r? Answer Actually, it's easier to compute and interpret r . First, recall what the quantities SSy y and SSE measure: SSyy is the sample variation in y (in fact, its expected value is the variance of y measures the deviation of y from the mean y– of all values of y. ^ SSE measures the deviation of y from the linear predicted y y y
2

y–y ^ y–y x x

SSyy SSE SSy y - SSE measures the part of the deviation of y from the mean that can be attributed to x. (For a perfect linear set of data SSE = 0, so all the deviation of y from the mean can be attributed to the value of x. On the other hand, if ∫1 was 0, then SSy y = SSE, so none of the deviation of y from the mean is attributable to the value of x.)

Thus, the proportion of the total sample variation that can be attributed to x is given by r2 = SSyy - SSE SSE =1SSy y SSy y

and this is just the square of the coefficient of determination. Coefficient of Determination r SSx y r = SSxx SSy y By Hand

or

r2 = 1 -

SSE SSy y Excel

It appears under “Multiple R” in the Excel regression analysis. Interpretation r2 is the proportion of the sample variation in y attributable to the value of x in a linear relationship. Quick Example If r2 = 0.85, then approximately 85% of the sample variation of the value of y is due to the value of x (assuming a linear relationship).

Variability of the Random Term First we record some consequences of the thre basic assumptions for lienar regression. Revall that our original probabilitic model is y = ∫0 + ∫1 x + œ where œ is normal with mean 0 an standard deviation ß. This quantity œ meqasures the variability of the random term, so the question is, how do we estimate it? Variability of the Random Term An unbiased estimator for ß2 is given by SSE SSE SYX 2 = = Degrees of freedom 1 n-2 where SSE can be calculated from the following formula: ^ SSE = sum of squares of errors = £(yi-yi )2 = SSy y - b1 SSx y SYX is called the estimated standard error of the regression model. (SYX2 is also called the mean square error.) In the Excel output, SYX appears in the “Regression Statistics” part of the table. See if you can also find the Mean square error in the table.

Interpretation of s We can use the Empirical rule here. It says that approximately 67% of all the observed values of y are within ±ß of y–, Using this for sample statitics, we deduce that around 67% of ^ all the observed values of y are within ±SYX of y . Similarly, approximately 95% of all the ^ observed values of y should lie within ±2S of y.
YX

Quick Example Look at the above Excel regression analysis. SSE = sum of squares of residuals = 1.1

There are n-2 degrees of freedom because we are estimating two parameters ∫0 and ∫2.

Topic 4 Inferences about the Slope and Correlation Coefficient (Based on §11.7 in book) In this topic, we will be able to answer several questions. Here is the first one. Question 1 Does y really depend on x based on the given data? For example, if you did a regression of a person's blood pressure as a function of his or her age, you would expect the answer to be yes, but if you did a regression of a soccer player's scoring average per game as a function of the number of kibbles and bits my pet chia ate on that day, you would expect the answer to be “no.” How can we analyze this in less obvious situations? First Recall that we have made an assumption that y = ∫0 + ∫1x + œ. The quantities ∫ 0 and ∫ 1 are thus, in effect, hypothesized parameters of the population from which the data is sampled. When we computed, we were making estimates of these parameters. Q Why can't we just take the mean of a sample to estimate ∫0 and ∫1? It worked in QM1... A We have no way of sampling ∫0 and ∫1 separately: all we can sample is y. Q OK, so we used those strange formulas to compute b0 and b1 . Are they at least unbiased estimators of ∫0 and ∫1? A Yes: given our assumptions about the model (above), the sampling distribution of b1 is always normal with mean ∫1 (since it is an unbiased estimator) and standard deviation S ß ß∫1 = ‡ YX . SSx x SSx x We call this latter quantity Sb 1 . So, Sb 1 = SYX SSx x

Before going on, we really need to (1) know where all this stuff is in the Excel table, and (2) know how to get these numbers by hand. The following formulas include things we have'nt yet gotten to, but have patience...

OK back to the task at hand. Now, recall that when we measured a sample mean, we used the sample information to test a hypothesis about the population mean. Here, we will test a hypothesis about the parameter ∫ 1 to answer the following question: Question 1: Does y depend on x at all? Note that, if y did not depend on x, then ∫1 would be zero. Thus, let us test the following hypothesis: H0: ∫1 = 0 H1: ∫1 ≠ 0 or H1: ∫1 > 0 or H1: ∫1 < 0. To test these at a given significance level, we use the above information about the sampling distribution of b1 to obtain a test statistic, and use the t-distribution based on (n-2) degrees of freedom.

Note: If t did not fall in the rejection region, that would not have meant that we must accept H0: ∫1 = 0. All it means that we cannot conclude that ∫1 is positive.

Guess what: The corresponding p-value (which works as is for the two-tailed test) is right next to it! Thus, if we are testing at the 95% confidence level, å = 0.05 and the p-value is 0.03, we can safely reject H0 since the p-value is smaller than å. For the one-tailed test, we use half the given p-value to estimate å, and so p ‡ .000 24501/2 ‡ 0.000 1225 so we can certainly reject H0 with a signficance level of 1 - 0.000 1255 = 0.999 8745, or 99.99%. Excel Note: We can compute the 1-tailed or 2-tailed p-value from any t-statistic using the formula =TDIST(t-stat. ,df , Number of tails (1 or 2)) For instance, the p-value for the above test is =TDIST(52.3911728,5,1) We are ready for the next question. Question 2 I got a slope of b1 . What is the confidence interval for that answer? To answer this question, we use knowledge we already have: if a random variable X is normally distributed with population mean µ and standard deviation ß, then if we take a sample of X, the (1-å) confidence interval for µ is x– ± zå/2ß/ n . The reason this works is that the sampling distribution of x– is normal with mean µ and standard deviation ßX— = ß/ n. But here, we saw above that the sampling distribution of b1 is always normal with mean ∫ 1 and standard deviation Sb 1 . Thus, we get the following confidence interval test: How to find the (1-å) Confidence Interval for the Slope ∫1 We can be 100(1-å)% certain that ∫1 is in the interval b1 ± tå/2 Sb 1 where tå/2 is based on (n-k-1) degrees of freedom. (For simple regression, k = 1, so use n-2 degrees of freedom.) Excel The quantity Sb 1 is the standard error in the slope, and appears in the X Variable 1 row under “Standard Error.” To obtain t.025 without using a table, enter =TINV(.05, DF) Worksheet 3 – Confidence Interval for the Slope Use the Excel printout of the preceding worksheet to compute a 95% confidence interval for the slope. b1 = _________ df = _________

Question 3: What is the F-statistic and what does it tell us? The F-statistic is defined to by MSR SSR/k F= = MSE SSE/(n-k-1) If ∫1 = 0, then SSyy ‡ SSE Since the regression line should be close to horizontal Therefore SSR = SSyy - SSE should be close to 0, resulting in a small value of F. The probability distribution for F assuming that ∫1 = 0 is known, and depends on two degrees of freeedom: k = 1 in the numerator and n-k-1 = n-2 in the denominator. Some of its critical values are given by the following table (a more complete table appears at the end of this booklet):

Topic 5 Using Regression to Predict y from x (Based on §11.8 in the book) Let us go back to the original scenario: x = monthly advertising expenditure in $100, y = monthly sales revenue in $1000. We can already predict y by using the formula for ^. What y we don't have is a confidence interval. Here are two questions we can ask: Question 1 What is a confidence interval for my average sales revenue if I pay $3500 (x = 3.5) for advertising in a month? That is, find a conrfidence interval for y–, the population mean of y, given a specific value of x. This confidence interval is called a confidence interval (CI) for the mean of y. Question 2 What is a confidence interval for my sales revenue in a particular month if I pay $3500 per month (x = 3.5) for advertising? That is, find a conrfidence interval for y, a particular value of y, given a specific value of x. This confidence interval is called a prediction interval (PI) for an individual response of y. Question What is the difference between these two confidence intervals? Answer We are less certain about a particular month's revenues than about the mean revenue. Therefore, the confidence interval for a particular value of y will be larger. All we need is a confidence interval for this prediction. Question Wait a minute! Since y = ∫ 0 + ∫ 1x + œ, and the standard deviation œ can be estimated by s, why not just use that s to give us a confidence interval for y? Answer If we knew the values of ∫0 and ∫ 1 exactly, that would be fine. But we don't know those values; we only have estimates b0 and b1 of those values. Thus, we can't use s to form our confidence interval. Note The tiniest error in b0 or b1 can have disastrous consequences for long-term prediction (illustration in class). Thus, the standard deviation and resulting confidence interval for our prediction of y from a given value of x should depend on how far that value of x is from the mean x–. Here are the underlying facts: ^ • If we use the regression value y to predict y– at a specified value xp of x, then the standard deviation of the error is given by 1 (xp-x–)2 + n SSx x where ß is the standard deviation of œ. ß(y-y–) = ß • ^ If we use the regression value y to predict y at a specified value xp of x, then the standard deviation of the error is given by ß

Topic 6 Multiple Regression: The Model & Inferences about the ∫ Parameters (Based on §12.1 and §12.4 in book) A linear function of k variables is a function of the form y = ∫0 + ∫1x1 + ∫2x2 + ... + ∫k xk . a probabilistic linear function of k variables has the form y = ∫0 + ∫1x1 + ∫2x2 + ... + ∫k xk + œ, where œ is normally distributed and independent of the values of the xi. Worksheet 1 - Interpreting the coefficients: Here is an example of a linear function of two variables: Chrysler's percentage share of the US mini-van market in the period 1993–1994 could be approximated by the linear function c(x1, x2, x3) = 72.3 - 0.8x1 - 0.2x2 - 0.7x3, where x1 is the percentage of the market held by foreign manufacturers, x2 is General Motors' percentage share, and x3 is Ford's percentage share.3 Interpretation of ∫1 : For every 1-unit increase in x1 , y ___________ by _________ units. In other words, Chrysler's percentage share of the US mini-van market in the period 1993–1994 ______________________________________________________________ ________________________. Interpretation of ∫2 : For every 1-unit increase in x2 , y ___________ by _________ units. In other words, Chrysler's percentage share of the US mini-van market in the period 1993–1994 ______________________________________________________________ ________________________. Interpretation of ∫3 : For every 1-unit increase in x3 , y ___________ by _________ units. In other words, Chrysler's percentage share of the US mini-van market in the period 1993–1994 ______________________________________________________________ ________________________.

Obtaining the best-fit coefficients for this kind of model is called multiple linear regression.

Variability of the Random Term The standard deviation ß of œ has an unbiased estimator for ß2 given as follows. First, the number of degrees of freedom is given by dy = n - # ∫-terms = n - (k+1) = n-k-1 Then the unbiased estimator is SSE s2 = = MSE (Mean Square Error) n-k-1 where ^ SSE = sum of squares of errors = £(yi-yi )2 s is called the estimated standard error of the regression model and appears under "Regression Statistics" whereas its square, MSE appears in the ANOVA section. Interpretation of s Just as with simple regression, we can make the following inference: Around 95% of the ^ observations will lie within 2s of the predicted value y . Coefficients of Multiple Determination As we saw for simple regression, the proportion of the total sample variation that can be attributed to the independent variables is given by SSyy - SSE SSR = SST SSy y 2 2 The textbook calls this quantity rY,12 . As for simple regression, r gives the proportion of the sample variation in y attributable to the values of the independent variables in a linear 2 relationship. A disadvantage of r is that it cannot be used to compare models with different numbers of explanatory variables. The larger the number of variables, the smaller SSE tends to become. In fact, it is possible to construct models with n - 1 variables that result in an 2 2 exact fit of the regression models, and hence SSE = 0, so that r = 1. The adjusted r is 2 defined by the following formula [which scales the quantity 1-r by the ratio (n-1)/)n-k1)]: È 2 2 n-1 ˘ ˙ radj = 1 - Í (1-r ) Î n-k-1˚ r2 = Question: How do we interpret the adjusted r ? 2 Answer: Suppose, for instance, that radj = .89. We can say that “if we take model size into account, 89% of the variation in y is explained by the values of the independent variables.” Answer: Suppose, for instance, that radj = .89. We can say that “if we take model size into account, 89% of the variation in y is explained by the values of the independent variables.”

Topic 7 Using F-statistics: Evaluating the Whole model and Portions of the Model (§12.3 and a variation of 12.4 in the book) In Topic 4 we saw that a F statistic could also be used to evaluate a simple linear regression. If we look at its definition, F= (SSy y- SSE)/k SSR/k = SSE/[n-(k+1)] SSE/(n-k-1)

we see that it related to the fit of the entire model. To understand its meaning, recall that SSyy = £ (y - y–)
2

and

SSE = Sum of

^2 £(y - y)

Therefore, if ∫1 = ∫2 = ... = ∫k = 0, then SSyy ‡ SSE

^ (Since the regression equation should be close to a constant, so that y– ‡ y ‡ that constant). Therefore SSR = SSyy - SSE ‡ 0, and so F is close to zero. In fact, its sampling distribution (assuming ∫1 = ... = ∫ k = 0) is the known distribution tabulated at the end of this booklet . The F-Statistic for Multiple Regression: Testing the Usefulness of the Overall Model The F-statistic is used to test the following hypothesis: H0: ∫1 = ∫2 = ∫3 = ... = ∫k = 0 Ha : At least one of these coefficients is non-zero. Test statistic: (SSy y- SSE)/k SSR/k R2/k F= = = SSE/(n-k-1) SSE/(n-k-1) (1-R2)/(n-k-1) Mean Square(Model) Sum of Squares(Regression)/df(Regression) = = Mean Sqare(Regression) Sum of Sqaures(Error)/df(Error) Using F: Compare the F-statistic to the one in the table with k df in the numerator & [n-(k+1)] df in the denominator. If F > Få, then we reject H0. Note: Rejecting H0 does not mean that the model is the best one; another model might give an even better confidence level.

Testing a Portion of a Model Suppose we want to test a bunch of terms at once (this was more reliable than testing them one-at-a-time, due to type 1 error accumulation). To do this, we compute an F-statistic showing the percentage of new errors caused by reducing the model as follows.

44

Testing a Portion of the Model Do two regression analyses: Reduced Model: y– = ∫0 + ∫1 x1 + ... + ∫g xg Complete (larger) Model: y– = ∫0 + ∫1 x1 + ... + ∫g xg + ... + ∫kxk H0: ∫g+1 = ... = ∫k = 0 Ha : at least one of them is not zero (SSRcomplete - SSRpartial)/[k-g] F = . SSEcomplete/[n-k+1] Rejection Region: F > Få, based on (k-g) numerator and n-(k+1) denominator df. n = # data points k-g = number of ∫'s tested Interpretation: The null hypothesis asserts that the additional explanatory variables xg+1, xg+2, ..., xk do not contribute significantly to the usefulness of the model. In other words, the reduced model is preferable. Rejecting it implies that the additional variables do contribute significantly to the usefulness of the model. Note: If the two models differ by a single term, then the F-test can be replaced by a t-test: Just do the regression analysis for the larger model, and test for the extra coefficient. Worksheet 2 — Testing a portion of a model Here is a model for the selling price of a home (y) as a function of the list price (x1), the number of bedrooms (x2), and the time on the market in weeks (x3). Use a comparison of models to determine whether x2 and x3 contribute significantly more than x1 alone. Reduced Model

Topic 8 Quadratic and Interactive Terms Quadratic Terms (Based on 12.6 in the text) Here are some data and a graph showing monthly electricity use vs. size of home in square ft. Size (sq. ft) x 1290 1350 1470 1600 1710 1840 1980 2230 2400 2930 Usage (kw-hrs) y 1180 1170 1260 1490 1570 1710 1800 1840 1960 1950

The Excel scatter chart suggests a quadratic relation. y = ∫ 0 + ∫ 1x1 + ∫ 2x12, so we take x2 to be x 12, by adding an extra column on the spreadsheet, and then do a multiple linear regression. The curvature is accounted for by the x12 term, so: There is no curvature ¤ Coefficient of x = 0 ¤ ∫2 = 0 Therefore, to test whether there is evidence of curvature, all we need to do is a t-test to look 2 at the coefficient of x . Worksheet 1 — Testing for Curvature Use the above data in Excel, complete the given table, find the regression quadratic model, use it top predict electric usage for a 2500 square ft home, and test for curvature at the 95% significance level.

First, download the data from http://people.hofstra.edu/faculty/Stefan_Waner/qm122 by using the Curvature Data link. Then create an extra column in the Excel workbook using the squares of the values of x (Notice that we put the y-column first):

Now do a regression using both x and x as the explanatory variables. Now do the regression and check that the given values match the part of the sheet shown below, and fill in the remaining ones.

Interactive Models (Based on nothing in this book, but a nice section in “Statistics for Business and Economics;” by McClave, Benson, Sincich; 8th Ed., Prentice Hall.) Here is some data showing the auction prices of 32 grandfather clocks together with the number of bidders and the age of the clock.

If we suspect that the age of the clock (x1) and the number of bidders (x2) will interact (that is, different numbers of bidders may cause the price to vary differently as a function of the age), we try a model of the form y = ∫0 + ∫1x1 + ∫2x2 + ∫3x1x2 + œ. The effect on the graph is to twist the surface (see the following picture generated by the grapher that comes with every Macintosh computer):

51

If ∫3 = 0, then each value of x2 will result in a line of the same slope for y as a function of x1. Otherwise, if ∫3 ≠ 0, the slope will vary.
Price (y) x1 = 15 bidders x1 = 10 bidders x1 = 5 bidders Price (y) x1 = 15 bidders x1 = 10 bidders x1 = 5 bidders

Age of Clock (x1)

Age of Clock (x1)

No Interaction (∫3 = 0)

Interaction (∫3 ≠ 0)

We suspect that the number of bidders will have a positive impact on the variation of price with age, so we test the alternate hypothesis Ha ∫3 > 0. To do this on Excel, we introduce a third column for x1x2, and do a regression at the 99% significance level:

The t-statistic for ∫3 is 4.86. We look up tå = t0.001 for n-(k+1) = 28 degrees of freedom as usual, and get 3.408. Since t > tå, we reject H0 and conclude that there is a strong interaction here. Also note the large value of R2 (95%) and the tiny value for Significance F, showing that the model is a good one.

Exercises for this Section Quadratic: p. 614, 12.37 To determine whether the addition of the quadratic term significantly improved the model, you could do a comparison of models using an F-statistic like in the last section, but, since there is only one additional variable, you might as well just look at its p-value based on the t-statistic. (The book is very wrong not to emphasize this point in its curious focus on using the F-statistic in Section 12.5 where the t-statistics would suffice.) Interaction: The following problem comes from “Statistics for Business and Economics;” by McClave, Benson, Sincich; 8th Ed., Prentice Hall. Download the CEO Data sheet at http://people.hofstra.edu/faculty/Stefan_Waner/qm122 (a) What does it mean for the salary and percentage stock price to interact? (b) Find the interaction regression equation, and test the overall model at the 95% level of significance. (You will fail to reject H0 .) (c) Is there evidence at the 95% level of significance that CEO income and stock percentage interact? (c) Looking at the p-values, try to eliminate one of the variables in order to obtain a model with a satisfactory F-value. What is the resulting regression model? (d) Using the better regression model, predict the change in profit for every $1000 increase in a CEO's income when the CEO owns 2% of the company stock. (e) If you were on a board of directors and wished to use the regression analysis above, would you be in favor giving a new CEO more stock and a lower salary? Explain.

Topic 9 Qualitative Variables (Based on §12-7 in the book, but we discuss two subtopics whereas the book only discusses one) If, for example, we are interested in the market activity in real estate, the time a home has to wait on the market may depend on whether it is a house or a condominium, and also on the asking price. Here, the asking price is a quantitative variable since it is a number, while the kind of home (house vs. condo) is a qualitative variable. In this topic, we see how to include qualitative variables (or "dummy variables" as they are called in the textbook.). Suppose we are interested in the sale price of a home as a function of whether it is (A) a house, (B) a condominium, or (C) a co-op. We can do so by defining two new variables (not three) Ï1 if the property is a condominium (Catgegory B); x1 = Ì0 if not Ó Ï1 if the property is a co-op (Category C); x2 = Ì0 if not Ó Then, in the model, we can plug in x1 = x2 = 0 for a house, x1 = 1 & x2 = 0 for a condo, etc. We say that x1 and x2 constitute a qualitative variable with 3 levels. Q How do we interpret the coefficients ∫i for the model? A If we use the example of housing sales, then, writing y– = ∫0 + ∫1x1 + ∫2x2, we find µA = mean sale price of a house (put x1 = x2 = 0) = f(0,0) = ∫0 µB = mean sale price of a condominium (put x1 = 1 & x2 = 0) = f(1,0) = ∫0 + ∫1 µC = mean sale price of a co-op (put x1 = 0 & x2 = 1) = f(0,1) = ∫0 + ∫2 Thus, ∫ 0 = µA ∫ 1 = µB-µA ∫ 2 = µC-µA. In other words, the coefficients measure the difference between the three categories. For instance, ∫1 measures the effect on the price of a home of switching from a house (the base level) to a condominium. Qualitative Variable With k Levels: Comparing k Means Model: E(y) = ∫0 + ∫1x1 + ∫2x2 + ... + ∫ k-1xk-1 Ï1 if y is observed at level i; xi = Ì0 if not Ó µA = ∫0 ∫ 0 = µA µB =∫0 + ∫1 ∫ 1 = µB-µA µC = ∫0 + ∫2 ∫ 2 = µC-µA

There you will find selling prices of various homes in 1995 (y) sold in (A) Manhattan, (B) Connecticut, and (C) Long Island. (a) Obtain the regression model and interpret the coefficients in the model. (b) Test at the 95% level of significance whether Connecticut homes are cheaper tan Manhattan homes, and whether Long Island homes are cheaper than Manhattan homes. (c) Test the overall model, and interpret the result. (d) According to the regression model, how much more expensive is a home in Connecticut than in Long Island?

(d) µ C - µB = (µC - µA ) - (µB - µA ) = ___________ - ___________ = __________ Interpretation:

NOTE H0 only tests whether µB = µA and µ C = µA. It does not test whether µC = µB. However—and this is why we use the term “level”—. If we were comparing the effectiveness of 5 different brands of detergents on a ketchup stain, we do not have levels, 56

and would like to know whether there is any difference at all among the 5 brands. Since there is no sense of “levels” here, we will use ANOVA (analysis of variance) later in this course address this. Using Qualitative Variables to Compare Two Slopes The effectiveness of an advertising medium can be measured by the number of items sold per $1,000 spent on advertising. That is, the slope of the Sales vs. Expenditures line. Suppose we want to compare (A) newspaper, (B) television, and (C) radio advertising. Let y be the monthly sales , and let x be the advertising expenditure (all three categories). Note that x is a quantitative variable. Let
Ï1 x1 = Ì0 Ó Ï1 x2 = Ì0 Ó

if we were advertising on the radio; if not if we were advertising on television; if not

Then consider first the linear model y– = ∫0 + ∫1x + ∫2x1 + ∫3x2. Claim: This model gives the same sales vs. expenditure slope for all three categories. Indeed, the slope for newspaper sales is obtained by setting ∫2 = ∫3 = 0, and we get y– = ∫0 + ∫1x , yielding a slope of ∫1. Similarly, if we look at radio advertising, we get y– = ∫0 + ∫1x + ∫2, (1) again a slope of ∫1. To obtain different slopes, we need the following interactive model: y– = ∫0 + ∫1x + ∫2x1 + ∫3x2 + ∫4xx1 + ∫5xx2. (2) This gives a slope of ∫ 1 for newspaper, ∫ 1+∫4 for radio, and ∫ 1+∫5 for television. Thus, if we test the hypothesis H0: ∫4 = ∫5 = 0 we are in fact testing whether or not the slopes for the three media are the same by testing the model for interaction. To do this, we use the reduced model test, comparing the interactive model and linear model..

(a) Using a regression model, determine the coefficients that give the slope of (1) productivity vs. bonus for non-union workers and (2) productivity vs. bonus for union workers Do the data provide evidence that non-union workers are more responsive to bonuses than union workers? (b) If we disregard bonuses, do the data provide evidence that non-union workers produce less than union workers? Solution (a) We use two levels: (A) non-union and (B) union. The model that shows We compare the following models: y– = _________________________________ Linear y– = _________________________________ Interactive

Normally, we would do a regression for each of these models. But, since they differ only by a single term, we need only do the interaction model and look at the (single) interaction term using a t-test. Set up the interactive model to obtain the following output: Interactive Model

Omit (i), (j), (k), (l) since they do not tell us anything interesting. Part (m) refers to the linear model. Also, answer the following question: If we ignore shelf space (notice the nice distribution of shelf sizes anyway) do items placed in front sell better than object placed at the back? Excel Assignment 2 Go the web site at http://people.hofstra.edu/faculty/Stefan_Waner/qm122 and download the Assignment 2 Excel worksheet. Important: Use the 90% level of significance throughout. Part 1: Extract the Long Island home sales data only. Let y = Sales price in $1000 x1 = Number of bedrooms x2 = Time on market in weeks x3 = Taxes & Maintenance Perform three regressions as follows. In each case, write down the regression model with coefficients rounded to 4 significant digits, and use the model to predict the selling price of a 3-bedroom home whose with $25,000 taxes after 10 weeks on the market. (a) Multiple linear model: y = ∫0 + ∫1 x1 + ∫2 x2 + ∫3 x3 (b) Interactive Model: y = ∫0 + ∫1 x1 + ∫2 x2 + ∫3 x3 + ∫4 x1 x2 + ∫5 x1 x3 + ∫6 x2 x3 2 2 2 (c) Quadratic model: y = ∫0 + ∫1 x1 + ∫2 x2 + ∫3 x3 + ∫4 x1 + ∫5 x2 + ∫ 6 x3 (d) Full second order model: y = Quadratic model + interactive terms

(e) Compare the model in (d) with those in (b) and (c). Based on the outcomes, decide which of the three four models is best for predicting the cost of a home. [Hint: The comparison of (d) and (b) tells you whether the quadratic terms contribute significantly, and the comparison of (d) and (c) tells you whether any of the interactive terms contribute significantly.] Part 2: Using the same data sheet, compare housing prices in (A) Manhattan, (B) Westchester, (C) Connecticut, and (D) New Jersey: (a) Is there any significant difference between housing prices in the four areas? (b) What does your regression model predict for the difference between the cost of a home in New Jersey and Westchester?

Topic 10 Analysis of Variance (ANOVA): Single Factor Analysis (Based on 9.1 in the book) In the language of ANOVA, we are interested in the response (dependent variable, which we called y in regression) to one or more factors (independent variables which we called x1 , x2 , ... in regression). These factors may be qualitative or quantitative, and their values are called levels. This is where they differ from the qualitative variables as we used them in regression. For instance, a qualitative factor may have non-numerical levels, such as Soccer, Football, etc., while quantitative ones have numerical levels. Finally, the treatments in an experiment are the levels (in a single factor experiment) or pairs of levels (in a multiple factor experiment), and the units are the elements of the sample space n the experiment (e.g. students for SAT measurements). Design of Experiments To design an experiment for factor analysis, one needs to first select a random sample of experimental units (e.g. soccer players) and then assign them (possibly randomly) to individual treatments for a given factor (e.g. have them practice in different brands of cleats and measure the resulting wear and tear). In an observational experiment, you would not decide who wears what cleats, but simply observe the wear and tear on the brands of cleats they already use. In a completely randomized design, one assigns experimental units (soccer players) to treatments completely randomly and independently. The objective is usually to compare the sample means for the different levels: µ1, µ2, ..., µc and we will test the null hypothesis H0: µ1 = µ2 = ... = µc against Ha : at least two of the treatment means are different. Q How do we test this? A For two treatments, we need to compare two means, µ1 and µ2 .

Method 1: Comparison of Two Means Statistics For this, we have the following, based on the sampling distribution of x–2 -x–1 . Comparing two Means Large Samples: ß1 2 ß2 2 s1 2 s2 2 ß(x–2 -x–1 ) = + ‡ + n1 n2 n1 n2 Confidence Interval for (µ2 - µ1 ) (x–2 -x–1 ) ± zå/2 ß(x–2 -x–1 ) Hypothesis Test H0 : (µ2 -µ1 ) = D0 (D0 = 0 for our purposes here) Ha: (µ2 -µ1 ) ≠ D0 or (µ2 -µ1 ) > D0 or (µ2 -µ1 ) < D0 where D0 is some hypothesized difference between the two parameters. Test statistic: z = (x–2 -x–1 ) - D0 ß(x–2 -x–1 )

Assumptions The two samples are randomly and independently selected from the two samples, and the sample sizes are sufficiently large so that the sampling distributions are approximately normal. Small Samples When one or both of the sample sizes is small, we cannot use the above approximation of ß(x–2 -x–1 ), since it is not an unbiased estimator. An unbiased estimator is given by: s(x–2 -x–1 ) = where Ê1 1ˆ sp 2 Á + ˜ Ë n1 n2 ¯

(n1 -1)s1 2 + (n2 -1)s2 2 sp = . ("pooled sample variance") n1 +n2 -2 This estimate allows to proceed as usual for small samples, using the t-distribution instead of the normal one.

Assumptions The distributions of x1 and x2 are normal with the same population variance. (The latter assumption is needed in order to guarantee that we can still use the t-distribution (otherwise we would need to use a new distribution).

63

Method 2: Regression Comparing Two Means with Regression Construct the following model, but call the treatments A and B (rather than 1 and 2) Let Ï1 if the measurement is made with treatement B; x1 = Ì0 if not Ó and use E(y) = ∫0 + ∫1 x1 . Then, µA = ∫0 µB = ∫ 0 +∫1 or ∫ 1 = µB -µA , Confidence Interval for (µB - µA ) This is the confidence interval for ∫1 Hypothesis Testing H0 : ∫1 = 0 Ha: ∫1 ≠ 0, ∫1 > 0, or ∫1 < 0 (If we want to use D0 ≠ 0, then first subtract D0 from all the data for treatment B.) Assumptions Same as for Method 1. Note that the regression assumption about the "noise" amounts to saying once again that the population variances are the same: Why? Because: If treatment B is not applied, then y = ∫0 + œ, so the st. deviation of the noise œ is the st. deviation for treatment A. If B is applied, then y = ∫0 + ∫1 + œ, so that same st. deviation is the st. deviation for treatment B. Q What about more than two treatments? A We use various statistics: (1) SSA = Sum of Squares Among different treatments or groups, measuring the variability of the treatment means (weighted with the number of samples in each treatment) 2 2 2 SSA = n1(x–1-x–) + n2(x–2-x–) + ... + nc (x–c-x–) Related to that is MSA = the Mean Square Among different treatments, obtained by dividing SSA by ñ1= c-1, which is the number of degrees of freedom for the c treatments. SSA MSA = c-1 Note that, if n1 = .. = nc = n, then MSA is n times the usual sample variance of the means. (2) SSW = Sum of Squares Within, measuring the variability within each treatment 2 2 2 SSW = £ j(x1j- x–1) + £ j(x2j- x–2) + ... + £ j(xpj- x–pc)

64

where the sums are taken over all measurements within the corresponding treatment. MSW, obtained by dividing SSW by its degrees of freedom: ñ2 = n-c. SSW MSW = n-c We take the ration of the above statistics to obtain an F-statistic: MSA Variation of Means F = MSW = Variation Within If F is close to 1, then the variation among sample means is completely explained by variation within treatments, and we will tend to not reject H0. If it is much larger than 1, we will reject H0. Comparison of More than Two Means: Single Factor ANOVA H0: µ1 = µ2 = ... = µc Ha : at least two of the treatment means are different. MSA Variation of Means Test statistic: F = MSW = Variation Within Rejection region: F > Få, where Få is based on ñ1 = (c-1) numerator and ñ2 = (n-c) denominator degrees of freedom. Assumptions 1. Samples are selected independently and randomly 2. All c population distributions are normal with the same variance. We usually summarize all the ANOVA statistics in an “ANOVE table”:

Solution: H0 : ______________________ Ha: ______________________ Conclusion:

Q How do we decide which specific golf ball goes further than the others? A We can compare the four brands pairwise using any of the above procedures. To do this, we use a Tukey-Kramer procedure: Tukey-Kramer Procedure for Pairwise Comparison This is used when we reject the null hypothesis in the ANOVA test (so that there is a significant difference among the means) Procedure: (1) Compute the magnitudes of all the pairwise differences |x–i - x–j| (2) Compute the Critical Range Qij for this pair (if the numbers in each group are the same, then so are the Qij): MSWÊ 1 1 ˆ Á ˜ Qij = Q 2 Ë ni + nj ¯ where Q is the upper-tail critical value from a studentized range distribution with c df in the numerator and n-c in the denominator. (Table at the rear of the booklet.) However, if we have, say, a 95% confidence level for each hypothesis test, we cannot be 95% confident in the result of all of them.

68

Conclusion: If |x–i - x–j| exceeds Q ij, then there is a statistically significant difference between µi and µj. Otherwise, there is not.

Topic 11 ANOVA—Two-Factor (Based on §9.3 in book) If we are looking at two factors (e.g. A: Type of club used to hit a ball, and B (2 of them, say): the brand of golf ball (4 of them, say)) then we might want to look at all possible combinations, or treatments: 8 of them. An experiment which includes all the possible treatments is called a complete factorial experiment. S'pose that Factor 1 has a levels and Factor 2 has b levels, so that there are ab treatments altogether. We are interested in two kinds of results: Main Effect of Factor A: H0:: No difference among the a levels in Factor A: (i.e., the brand of golf ball does not effect the distance traveled Ha : at least two of the factor A means differ.) MS(A) Test statistic: F = MSW Rejection region F>Få based on (a-1) numerator & (n-ab) denominator. Main Effect of Factor B: H0:: No difference among the b levels in Factor B: (i.e., the type of golf club does not effect the distance traveled Ha : at least two of the factor B means differ.) MS(B) Test statistic: F = MSW Rejection region F>Få based on (b-1) numerator & (n-ab) denominator. Interaction: H0: Factors A and B do not interact to effect the response mean (i.e., changing the golf ball has no effect on the ratios of the mean distances for the type of club used.) Ha : A and B do interact to effect the response mean.) MS(AB) Test statistic: F = MSW Rejection region F>Få based on (a-1)(b-1) numerator & (nab) denominator. Q Exactly what are all these things MS(A), MS(B) and MS(AB), etc? A They are obtained as follows. SS(A) = n1(x–1-x–)2 + n2(x–2-x–)2 + ... + na (x–a -x–)2, where the x–1 is the mean for all data from level 1 of Factor A, x–2 is the mean for level 2, etc. (just ignore which level of Factor B they belong to). x– is the overall mean. Then, to get MS(A), divide by the (number of treatments for Factor A) -1: SS(A) MS(A) = a-1 SST(B) and MS(B) are defined similarly. 71

For SS(AB), use the sum of all terms nij (x–ij - x–j - x–j + x–)

2

where x–ij is the mean of all data from treatment (i, j); that is, level i of factor A and level j of factor B, and nij is the number of these data points. SS(AB) So, MS(AB) = (a-1)(b-1) Question: What do we do when there is interaction? Answer: The interaction test should be done first because, it there is interaction, then the results for main effects are not informative (certain levels of Factor A might respond favorably with certain levels of Factor B) and the Main Effects statistics combine all the levels of one of the factors. When there is interaction, the only meaningful pairwise comparisons are among all the ab treatments. That is, regard the entire experiment as a single factor one with ab different levels, and do a pairwise comparison using TukeyKramer. Question: If there is no interaction? Answer Then do the entire analysis. If Factor A has an effect, then do a pairwise comparison among the a levels in Factor A using the following critical value for Q (due to Tukey —by himself, this time): MSW Qcritical = Q bn' where n' = number of data scores within each treatment, and where Q has the following degrees of freedom: numerator: a, denominator: ab(n'-1) Worksheet 1—Two Factor ANOVA with Excel We consider more golf club data where, this time the factors are: Factor A: type of club; a = 2 Factor B: brand of club; b = 4 The following data is at http://people.hofstra.edu/faculty/Stefan_Waner/qm122 under Golfball Two Factor.

Topic 12 Quality Improvement: Types of Variation (Based on §15.6 & 15.5 in book) Basically, we are interested in monitoring the output of some (industrial) process to check for patterns that might indicate a production problem. We use time series plot together with a centerline drawn at the intended mean. Examples of Variation: Oscillation up & down relative to mean Uptrend/downtrend increasing variance cyclical behavior meandering (autocorrelation) outlier/shock level shift (jump to new level) The output distribution is characterized by its mean and variance. If neither of these quantities changes with time, then the process is in a state of statistical control. Otherwise, it's out of statistical control. Note that random behavior is not a sign of being out of control. However, variation of its mean and variance is. Testing for Statistical Control The First Test: The 3ß-Control Limit Let H0: Process is under control (normally distributed with st. deviation ß) Ha : Process is out of control If the process is under control, then 0.0027 (or 0.27%) of the data point should lie outside 3 standard deviations from the mean. So, every time the machine produces a widget, we can measure its size, and then test Ho. Let our rule for rejection be this: Rule for rejecting H0: If the reading is outside 3ß, then reject H0. The probability of a Type I error is then P(we reject H0 | H0 is valid) = P(reading is outside 3ß | data is normally distributed with st. deviation ß) = 0.0027. Question What do we use as the mean and standard deviation for the process? Answer The sample mean and st. deviation, if that's all we can find. Types of Charts: First, we look at charts to monitor the ranges of a process (R charts) and the sample means (x– charts). The first chart that should be examined for a specific process is the R chart, because if it is out of statistical control, then the information given on the x– chart may not be meaningful.

76

1. R chart R stands for Range, and this gives a useful estimate for monitoring the standard deviation of smallish samples. To measure R, we use small samples of output readings, compute the range of each, and then plot the data. In the graph, we use a centerline and upper and lower control limits (UCL, LCL). These are estimates of the following quantities: Centerline = estimate of µ (population mean of the ranges) UCL = estimate of µ + 3ß/ n (n = sample size, ß = standard deviation of the ranges) Unbiased estimators are given as follows: Estimator of R: R— Estimator for µ - 3ß/ n = D3R— Estimator for µ + 3ß/ n = D4R— ¨ Centerline ¨ LCL ¨ UCL

where D3 and D4 are obtained from the control chart table at the back.. (It is computed from intermediate statistics called d2 and d3 , also shown in that table). Given these limits, we graph the time series in question (R in this case) and use the following pattern recognition rules to determine whether the process is out of statistical control: Pattern Analysis Rules These are rules to spot rare events; that is, events that indicate a likelihood that a process is out of control. H0: Process is under control (normally distributed with a fixed standard deviation) Ha : Process is out of control We reject H0 if any one of the following conditions are found: Rule 1: One or more points beyond the UCL or LCL (Outlier or increasing variance) Rule 2: 8 points in a row on the same side of the centerline (Meandering, Uptrend/downtrend, or level shift) Rule 3: Six points in a row monotonically increasing or decreasing (Uptrend/downtrend) Rule 4: 14 points in a row oscillating up & down (Oscillation) Note: Detecting cyclical behavior is more tricky, and may require more sophisticated methods (such as Fourier transform methods). When a process is suspected of being out of control, the process should be analyzed to determine what, if any, changes should be made. Even when it is in statistical control, the

77

process might not be satisfactory — for instance, the mean value of R might be too large, reflecting an unacceptably large variation in the product being manufactured. Worksheet 1—R Chart The following data is at http://people.hofstra.edu/faculty/Stefan_Waner/qm122 under Soda Bottle Fills:

Topic 12 2 Using the Chi-Square (≈ ) Distribution: Multinomial Distributions and Testing for Independence (The first topic is similar to §10.3 but interpreted differently — see notes— and the second is §10.4) Multinomial Distributions Recall that a Bernoulli trial has two outcomes: success/failure. What about three or more outcomes? For this, we talk of the Multinomial Probability Distribution. This is really a "vector-valued" binomial distribution: Suppose for example, there are n possible outcomes at every trial. Then let 1 if the outcome is #1 1 if the outcome is #2 Ì Ì x1 = Ï0 if not , x2 = Ï0 if not , ... , Ó Ó Ï1 if the outcome is #n xk = Ì0 if not . Ó Then, if pi = P(xi = 1), one has p1 + p2 + ... + pk = 1. For example, p1 is the probability of consumers who prefer Brand i. Here, we test the following hypothesis: H0: p1, p2, ... , pk have specified values P0, ... , Pk (for instance, in a no-preference situation, Pi = 1/k) Ha : At least one of the probabilities differs from the prescribed value. The experiment to test the hypothesis: In a sample of size n, let n1 = # of responses in which the outcome is outcome #1 n2 = # of responses in which the outcome is outcome #2 ... nk = # of responses in which the outcome is outcome #k and let n = n1 + ... + nk (total sample size). If H0 is valid, then each outcome has expected value E(xi) = nPi where n is the total sample size. We use the following test statistic: [n1 - E(x1)]2 [n - E(xk )]2 + ... + k E(x1) E(xk ) (Note: ni = observed value, E(xi) = predicted value) ≈2 = For sufficiently large4 sample size n, the (sampling) distribution of ≈ 2 (in a situation where H0 is true) is approximately the Chi-Square distribution with (k-1) degrees of freedom. Q What do we mean by that? A Take many samples of size n, and measure ≈ 2 for all of these. The resulting probability distribution is approximately Chi-Square with (k-1) degrees of freedom.

large enough, that is, so that E(ni ) exceeds 5.

82

Q Why k-1 degrees of freedom? A The loss of one is due to the equation p1 + p2 + ... + pk = 1. Q Why is the binomial formula for E(xi) still valid in a multinomial experiment? A To compute E(xi), lump all the other outcomes together as "failure" and you are in the binomial distribution. Multinomial Probability Distribution This is a sequence of n independent (identical) trials, where there are k possible outcomes in each trial. With
Ï1 if the outcome is #i xi = Ì0 if not Ó

and pi = P(xi = 1), one has p1 + p2 + ... + pk = 1. Hypotheses H0: p1 = P1, p2 = P2, ... , pk = Pk Ha : At least one of the pi ≠ Pi. Test Statistic With ni = # of responses in which the outcome is outcome #i Take [n1 - E(x1)]2 [nk - E(xk )]2 2 ≈ = + ... + , where E(xi) = nPi E(x1) E(xk ) 2 2 Critical value for ≈ = ≈å =CHIINV(ALPHA, DF) Uses df = k-1 Notes 1. This is a two-sided test; the test statistic does not differ between positive and negative values of ni-E(xi). 2. The test statistic can be rewritten as follows if we divide top & bottom by n: ^ ^ n1 [p1 - P1 ]2 nk[pk - Pk]2 2 ≈ = + ... + P1 Pk where ^ is the observed proportion corresponding to outcome i: p

^ = ni pi n Assumptions Same as for the binomial distribution: The probability of each outcome is fixed and independent of the history.

Worksheet 1—Multinomial Distribution Pay increases at Company X depend on evaluation scores, as follows: Scores > 80 Æ Merit pay increase Scores in [50,80] Æ Standard pay increase Scores < 50 Æ No pay increase The company designed the system with the expectation that 25% would get merit increases, 65% would get standard increases and 10% no increases. The actual results in a survey of the 600 instances (after several years of doing this) was: n1 = 193; n2 = 365; n3 = 42. (a) Test these data at the 95% level as to whether the actual pay increases differed significantly from the desired outcomes (indicating to management that they had better change the test...) (b) Construct a 95% confidence interval for the merit pay outcome. Solution (a) n= P1 = H0 : H a: E(x1) = nP1 = E(x2) = nP2 = E(x3) = nP3 = [n - E(x1)] ≈ = 1 E(x1) ˘2 ˙ ˚ +

Conclusion:

(b) Think of this as a test with two outcomes: Success = Merit pay outcome (outcome #1); Failure = any of the other two. Then we have a binomial distribution, which we approximate with a normal distribution. The confidence interval for x1 can now be computed using the binomial distribution confidence interval: ^ ±z p å/2 where ^ = Probability of success (observed) = p n= ß^ = p = ^ (1-p) p ^ n ¥ ‡ zå/2 = z____ = p(1-p) n

This gives the CI as CI = ‡ ‡[

± ± , ]

Note We can use the above procedure to compare two probability distributions as in the textbook: Think of one of them as the observed set of probabilities and the other as the hypothesized set of probabilities. As far as rejecting the null hypothesis is concerned, it does not mater which set is which. Testing for Independence In QM I we all saw tables like following: Example 1 A survey of 100 stocks shows the following performance after one year

In QM I we were asked such questions as "are "Increased>20%" and "Banking Company" independent? In real life, they were practically always dependent, since the requirement for independence is that p1 1 = PR 1PC1 etc., and getting exact equality would be next-to impossible, given random errors. Instead, we ask the question in the form of a hypothesis: H0: The row events are independent of the column events. Ha : At least one of the row events is not independent of a column event. Mathematically, H0 means that pij = PRiPCj (recalling QM I) for every pair (i, j) For this example, it means: H0: The performance of a stock does not depend on the type of stock Ha : The performance of a stock does depend on the type of stock We use, as estimates of the marginal probabilities, the relative frequencies found in the table above, and compute a test statistic.

PRiPCj i,j i,j where E(xij) = n PRiPCj = Expected frequency. (Note that this is not the same as the observed frequency pij.) Q How many degrees of freedom are there? A If we are thinking of the Pri and Pcj as fixed, the last probability in each row and column is determined by the others, and so df = (r-1)(c-1). In this example, df = (3-1)(3-1) = 4.

Excel Assignment 3 Uncovering Tax Fraud using Benford's Law and Chi Square You are a tax fraud specialist working for the Internal Revenue Service (IRS), and have just been handed a portion of the tax return from Colossal Conglomerate. The agency suspects that the portion you were handed may be fraudulent, and would like your opinion. Is there any mathematical test, you wonder, that can point to a suspicious tax return based on nothing more than the numbers entered? You decide, on an impulse, to make a list of the first digits of all the numbers entered in the portion of the Colossal Conglomerate tax return (there are 625 of them). You first reason that, if the tax return is an honest one, the first digits of the numbers should be uniformly distributed. More precisely, if the experiment consists of selecting a number at random from the tax return, and the random variable X is defined to be the first digit of the selected number, then X should have the following probability distribution: y P(X=x) 1 1/9 2 1/9 3 1/9 4 1/9 5 1/9 6 1/9 7 1/9 8 1/9 9 1/9

You then do a quick calculation based on this probability distribution, and find an expected value of E(X) = 5. Next, you turn to the Colossal Conglomerate return data and calculate the relative frequency (experimental probability) of the actual numbers in the tax return. You find the following results. Colossal Conglomerate Return 3 4 5 6 0.13 0.11 0.07 0.07

y P(Y=y)

1 0.31

2 0.16

7 0.05

8 0.06

9 0.04

It certainly does look suspicious! For one thing, the smaller digits (especially 1) seem to occur a lot more often than any of the larger digits. Moreover, when you compute the expected value, you obtain E(Y) = 3.42, considerably lower than the value of 5 you predicted. Gotcha! You are about to file a report recommending a detailed audit of Colossal Conglomerate when you recall an article you once read about first digits in lists of numbers. The article dealt with a remarkable discovery in 1938 by Dr. Frank Benford, a physicist at the General Electric company. What Dr. Benford noticed was that the pages of logarithm tables that listed numbers starting with the digits 1 and 2 tended to be more soiled and dogeared than the pages whose listed numbers started with larger digits—say, 8. For some reason, numbers starting with low digits seemed more prevalent than numbers starting with high digits. He subsequently analyzed more than 20,000 sets of numbers, such as tables of 89

baseball statistics, listings of widths of rivers, half-lives of radioactive elements, street addresses, and numbers in magazine articles. The result was always the same: inexplicably, numbers starting with low digits tended to appear more frequently than the high ones, with numbers beginning with the digit 1 most prevalent of all.5 Moreover, the expected value of the first digit was not the expected 5, but 3.44. Since the first digits in Colossal Conglomerate's return have an expected value of 3.42; very close to Benford's value, it might appear that your suspicion was groundless after all. (Back to the drawing board...) Out of curiosity, you decide to investigate Benford's discovery more carefully. What you find is that Benford did more than simply observe a strange phenomenon in lists of numbers. He went further and derived the following formula for the probability distribution of first digits in lists of numbers. P(X=x) = log(1 + 1/x) (x = 1, 2, ..., 9)

You compute these probabilities, and find the following distribution. x P(X=x) 1 0.30 2 0.18 3 0.12 4 0.10 5 0.08 6 0.07 7 0.06 8 0.05 9 0.05

(a) Give a bar graph which compares the probabilities of the first digits predicted by Benford's law with those observed in the tax return. It should look something like the following (although the data are different).

(b) Apply a Chi-Square test to the hypothesis that p(X=1), p(X=2), ... ,p(X=9) have the values specified by Benford's law at the 95% significance level. Use the Excel setup shown below. (Note that n = 625 here and is entered into the cell that calculates ≈ 2 .) What do you conclude about Colossal Conglomerate's tax return?

5

The does not apply to all lists of numbers. For instance, a list of randomly chosen numbers between 1 and 999 will have first digits uniformly distributed between 1 and 9.
